You Can Seek Action for a Medical Malpractice Injury
When you see a doctor about an illness or injury, you expect to receive professional treatment and successful results. This happens most of the time. However, for those times where the doctor makes an error and adds to your pain and suffering, you may end up with extra medical bills and more time off from work. This did not need to happen. Had the doctor treated you properly, you would not have increased financial pressure on your family.
Although it can seem odd to accuse a medical professional of making a mistake, such errors do happen. You should not have to suffer financially because of the error. This situation is unsettling. People naturally want to believe doctors do not make errors. However, when the facts show that your visit to the doctor turned out incredibly wrong, you have the right to hold that doctor accountable for his or her actions.
How do I Know If I Can Afford a Maryland Medical Malpractice Attorney?
The team at MD Accident Law works on a contingency fee basis when taking on a medical malpractice case. This means we do not require clients to pay any money up front to hire our team. Instead, our fee comes from a percentage of the final settlement amount.
If we do not win a settlement for you, we do not receive payment. We understand that you may be having quite a bit of stress about your finances in a medical malpractice situation. We will not add to that stress by charging you a fee ahead of time.

We Will Keep Your Case on Track
One thing that tends to happen to victims of medical malpractice who choose not to hire an attorney is that the insurance company delays the proceedings. The insurer may hope that by delaying the case, the victim will become tired of waiting and will settle for a smaller amount.
When you hire our medical malpractice Havre de Grace lawyer, rest assured that we always work hard to move your case forward as quickly as possible. We will adhere to state laws regarding the medical malpractice statute of limitations, which is five years, according to Md. Cts. & Jud. Proc. Code § 5-109.
We will work to settle your case as quickly as possible. However, we will not sacrifice your chances of winning the largest possible settlement to speed things along.
How Much Can I Recover in a Medical Malpractice Case?
Our team cannot guarantee that you will win a certain amount in your malpractice claim. Each case that we take on is different. The actual amount any of our clients could win will depend on the facts in the case.
If you suffered life-changing or lingering additional injuries because of the error at the hospital or in the doctor’s office, you could win a larger settlement. For those whose additional injuries are minor and heal within a few weeks, the settlement will be smaller.
Variable Awards Are Possible in These Cases
Awards in these cases can range from several thousand dollars to seven-figure amounts. We will work toward the maximum award that we can obtain from the insurance company on your behalf.
At some point during the negotiations, the malpractice insurance company will likely offer you a settlement amount. We can give you advice on whether we think you should accept the award, continue negotiations, or go to trial. However, the final decision always rests with you.
We know how insurers treat victims in cases like this. Our malpractice attorneys in Havre de Grace know how to counteract these techniques from insurers. We always work to protect your interests in the most professional manner possible.
